The Integrated Homicide Investigation Team has identified the victim of Monday's shooting in Surrey as 30-year-old Andrew Baldwin.

Baldwin was killed on Remembrance Day at a house in the 10700 block of 124 Street in Surrey. Police were called to the scene just before 5 p.m. PT.

Frank Jang of IHIT confirmed by email that Baldwin was the brother of 27-year-old Keith Baldwin, who was shot and killed in Chilliwack in late October.

Jang said the brothers were known to police. It's unknown whether the incidents are linked.

Police said on Monday that the attack did not appear random or connected to gang conflicts. On Wednesday IHIT said in a written statement that the investigation is in its early stages and that a motive has not yet been determined.

IHIT is working with Surrey RCMP, the Integrated Forensic Identification Services and the B.C. Coroners Service to gather further evidence.

Asking for public's help

IHIT is asking witnesses and drivers with dashcam video who were near Old Yale and Scott Road on Monday to contact them immediately.

Investigators are also asking anyone with information about Baldwin's activities before his death to come forward.

A suspect who fled the scene on Monday was wearing a dark hooded sweatshirt and dark pants with reflective material around the bottom of the pant leg. He was last seen heading northbound on 124 Street.

Anyone with information is asked to call the IHIT information line at 1-877-551- IHIT (4448), or by email at ihitinfo@rcmp-grc.gc.ca.
